Back to Blighty and My New York Bucket List

Wow, it has been AGES since my last post!  I think my enthusiasm for writing about living in NYC has come to end, which coincides well with the fact that I am leaving next month.

We are being relocated back to the UK for a couple of years and I must admit I am ready to leave the city.  I have made a great life for myself over the past four years and it will be sad to leave some parts of it behind, but overall I am ready to leave New York.  I'm sad to be leaving the US, and know we will be back one day, but I am really looking forward to being close to the friends and family I left behind in England.

That said, I have six weeks left to enjoy the city and my outlook is much more positive since I found out we were leaving!  There are certain things that I want to do before going back to the UK and here is my Bucket List of the 10 things I want to do before I leave New York:

1. Visit the MET-I know, it's disgusting that I haven't been in 4 years. Please don't judge!
2. Visit MOMA-As above
3. Go up into the crown of The Statue of Liberty
4. NBC Studio Tour and meet a Rockette
5. Go to the Top of The Rock and have a drink in Sixty Five at The Rainbow Room
6. Get the cable car over to Roosevelt Island
7. See The Book of Mormon on Broadway
8. Volunteer at The Natural History Museum for Halloween
9. Eat in as many vegan restaurants as I can - I think it will be slim pickings in the UK by comparison
10. Get Vegan sushi from 'Beyond Sushi' at Chelsea Market

I will let you know how I get on and fingers crossed I will get them all done before I go back to the UK!

  1. This was my second time attending NYC events at this place, and was my first business event here (the other event was a charity show). Everything was perfect, the drinks and food was amazing. Even the coffee was wonderful.
